WARNING: THIS IS AN INTENDED DISCUSSION OF USA AND WORLDWIDE POLITICS Do not join in unless you are: Thick Skinned Willing to be questioned Capable of backing opinions with (semi)credible sources Capable of thinking past your own Parties "party line" Capable of considering all evidence submitted in a reply without merely restating original claims Capable of not being a simpleteon douche and calling someone out to fistfight on Ventura Bl. Capable of restraint from every post being an open call to outright anarchy (sorry Rube) As I've stated openly to anyone here who's been kind enough to listen, I personally feel betrayed by both major parties as an overwhelming preponderance of evidence is that both Clinton and Trump are lying disingenuous hateful thieves using rhetorical slurs to keep America divided. (Personal Disclosure: I'm a long time business owner, engineer and father of college educated kids and I've voted Republican for at least 30 years before changing to Democrat this year to vote against Hillary. Also in support of some of Sander's more egalitarian policies. I back up what I say and this week alone received multiple correspondences from three different candidates in CA responding to my previous inquiries. I don't like what's happened in politics and I'm spending an effort getting under the skins of the ones in my area that should be held accountable, whether I voted for them or not. I ALWAYS VOTE. Always. When Rube doesn't vote then my vote counts double. When others are intimidated by the entire voting process then my vote counts for 8 or 10 votes.) Participate or not. If you just want to bkitch from the sidelines then that's OK too provided you admit that you have chosen to abandon your only strength and as such nobody should care WTF you think since you bowed out before trying. Further I'll wager that our conversations here on DSP, however sarcastic, slanted or biased, will always be better than the behaviors displayed by these two pathological liars. You will note that there is ample evidence speaking against either candidate and it has already been confirmed that each side is merely trying to throw so much chaff in the air that most people will still listen to what they want to hear while ignoring anything to the contrary. Therefore do not be surprised if I post on the BS being displayed on both sides of the aisle. I am equally underwhelmed by both Clinton and Trump. This disgusts a great many of my friends who steadfastly claim that one is still better for our country than the other. My friends are wrong. Both are bad for America.
